Sounds like a good idea.

This I don't understand. The "create segment" tool only shows a 
preliminary line if you hover over an existing node; if you hover over 
another segment where you might want to create a new node, it will not 
show a line.

Do you perhaps mean something similar to this?

I have done that some time ago (see 
http://josm.eigenheimstrasse.de/ticket/14) but felt that the function 
had no place in the JOSM core and thus submitted it for inclusion in the 
Utils plugin, however it seems to never have materialised there. 
(Admittedly, what I submitted was a bit prototypical, and was in need of 
some parameter input panel or so.) I still think it would fit in there, 
better than creating a mini plugin for just this one function... Martijn?
